To our valued blood donors,

Time flies when you’re having fun!  As 2017 rushes toward its end, we wanted to take some time out to thank you, our invaluable blood donors, for your ongoing support of our important research into blood-based diseases. We had some serious research highlights into managing blood clotting, see below.

Monash researcher leads drive to better manage global research ‘deluge’

A/Prof Julian Elliott speaking at the Commonwealth
Health Minister's award function in June 2017
by Anne Crawford

For some 30 years, international literature about medical and scientific research topics worldwide has been critically reviewed, summarised and distilled for all to use in what are called ‘systematic reviews’. But with an exponential growth in research, about 7% of these reviews are out-of-date on the day they’re published as the field has moved on, while 25% are out-of-date within two years.

Head of Clinical Research in the Department of Infectious Diseases, Associate Professor Julian Elliott, is behind a push for a better model to make sense of this “data deluge”. He and his team are trialing what he has termed ‘living systematic reviews’ (LSR), enlisting methods including online platforms, artificial intelligence and ‘citizen science’ to improve efficiency in the production of the reviews.
